From Bank Robbers to French Guitarists, Since 1919
This small historic hotel in downtown Tucson wears many hats: a "best bar in America," serving drinks continuously since 1919; site of the 1934 capture of infamous bank robber John Dillinger; dance club; and the longest-running music venue of its kind west of the Mississippi.
You can also get one of this desert city's best coconut cream pies in the hotel's Cup Café. On top of that, breakfast here rocks.
Recently, French guitarist/composer Stéphane Wrembel (who did the soundtrack for the recent Woody Allen film Midnight in Paris) played in the hotel's Club Congress.
This town is more eclectic than you might think. Check out what's playing the next time you pass through Southern Arizona...
